The Bottom Line A change in sensor brings the 30x zoom Canon PowerShot SX510 HS' photo and movie quality as well as its shooting performance up a notch. For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot. More point-and-shoot than dSLR in terms of features and performance than some competing high-end megazooms, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is a very good camera for those after a big zoom range, better control over results, and fine picture quality.
